I suppose this isn't about photography so much as the online distribution of photos.
The gist: I'm looking for an online source for a robust catalog of free and high-quality color photos taken within the past decade or so. Flickr demands I do too much clicking-thru to determine if a photo is available, and its max size/resolution is on the low end of what I'm looking for. Google Image search is also insufficient, as it's polluted with junk. Any ideas?
